Starting this thread to specifically FEATURE the IMPERIAL ROYAL GUARD costumes that have helped to GROW the RANKS of the 501st MALAYSIA-BRUNEI OUTPOST since 2006. These CANON Scarlet helmeted, robed and Force Pike armed guards are from :
SW Episode VI - RETURN OF THE JEDI, where they made their majestic debut
SW Episode II and III - where they were retro-featured in the Prequel Trilogy
that are already in our 501st approved costume Inventory and OWNED by TR-2870 , TR-5666 and TR-9118. It is possible that we might have STAR WARS Expanded Universe Crimson Empire Royal Guardsmen such as Kir Kanos and Carnor Jax added to our GARRISON geared ranks in the near future.
TR-9118 our NEWEST SW Episode III Imperial Royal Guard

The overall Full Lenght View of the SW Ep III Emperor's Royal Guard prop, which was taken by Plo Strax-Avix's Higher Resolution Digital Camera :

A Closer look at the SW Ep III type Helmet. I took this pic without a flash (since they are NOT permitted) and the ONLY lighting available was the display lighting, hence the less than crisp picture here :
"cowboy" tipped boots worn by the SW Ep III Emperor's Royal Guards . It appears that a reddish-brown felt material was used on the outers surface of these "cowboy" boots :
